I wrote this in a random moment of stupidity that was inspired by my own experiences with the microwave. Currently it is microwave 2, me 0. I have made both of the mistakes in this story and yes, it really was that bad. Hangs head in shame. I will never listen to my younger brother again. (Younger because he's bigger than me.)

I don't own Obi-Wan or Anakin, George Lucas does. The lucky little...

Anyways, on with the story. : )


"Master, how do you do those rolls, you do them so well and mine always turn out really bad.

Obi-Wan Kenobi looked down at his Padawan who was sitting opposite him at the table in their kitchen. "I simply heat them up in the microwave."

Anakin looked at Obi-Wan as if to say, No really. "How long and at what temperature do you put them in for?"

Obi-Wan looked thoughtfully at his Padawan and was about to tell him the truth when a most excellent idea occurred to him. Hiding the mischievous smile that threatened to break across his face, he said in an almost too nonchalant tone, "Well you see the frozen reheat button?" At Anakin's acknowledgement Obi-Wan continued, "You press that and then adjust the numbers so that they display one point five, got it?"

"Got it!" Anakin exclaimed excitedly.

"Right, well, I have to go and teach a class and you have to get to class so get moving, kiddo."


Obi-Wan glanced at his chrono, he was late home again and he had a bad feeling about what he would discover when he got there.

This feeling of his was proved correct when he opened the door to the apartment he shared with his Padawan and stopped dead. He couldn't see what was happening inside the apartment but he could certainly smell it. There was a yellowish, cheese smelling smoke coming from the kitchen. "Anakin! What happened?"

"You lied! That's what happened!" accused Anakin who appeared out of the smoke. At Obi-Wan's look, he elaborated. "I came home and when you weren't here I decided to make myself a cheese and bacon roll. I did exactly as you told me. And this happened."

At this, Obi-Wan burst into peels of laughter, which brought him some strange looks from those in the hall who weren't already stopped to stare at the spectacle before them.

"I fail to see what is so funny." Anakin stated, clearly not amused. Obi-Wan quickly sobered and said, "Have you gotten it out yet?"

Anakin glared at Obi-Wan defiantly for a few more seconds then relented. Looking at his feet he said, "No."

"Well I'll do it then." Obi-Wan walked into the kitchen, followed closely by Anakin. He opened the microwave, only to have more cheesy smoke billow out. He reached in grabbed the plate and quickly transferred it to the bench, accompanied by a yelp of pain. Anakin watched Obi-Wan race over to the sink and wash off his hand. He turned the water off and immediately went to the freezer, fished out a freezer block and pressed it too his hand. It was at this point that Obi-Wan turned around and Anakin burst out laughing at the look of pain on his face.

"A trip to the healer's wing, Master?"
